quickly officials actually suspected that the killing of four americans in benghazi was an act of terror, and how troubled the subsequent investigation into that deadly assault is turning out to be. today, 16 days after the attack, defense secretary leon panetta stated plainly what was obvious to many, including senator john mccain, who joins us shortly, almost from the beginning. >> as we determined the details of what took place there and how that attack took place, that it became clear that there were terrorists who had planned that attack. >> the best we can tell, this is the first time any administration official has uttered the word "planned" to describe what happened. asked how long it took to reach his conclusion, secretary panetta said quote, took awhile once information from benghazi came back. but keeping them honest, multiple sources now tell "360" that officials knew this was a terror attack almost from the get-go within 24 hours. at least intelligence officials. yet this is what they were saying for more than a week publicly after the killing. >> it'important to know that

-cocked. part of why governor romney looked bad responding to the tragedy in benghazi, he seemed like he was too political and too opportunistic. it could be here that the president was a little too cool. i don't think in his defense for a minute he would say that the murder of an ambassador and other american personnel, much less all the other folks who have died in that region, is just a bump in the road. i think what he's trying to do is show everybody that we're on this, the united states is doing well and you know, i think that's a kind of typical no drama obama response. >> alex, is that what it is, the cool head of the president? >> i think there's something to that, but i think there's also a little more, and that is that this president's great strength is his intellect. he lives inside his head and his ideas. and part of it is he doesn't really feel your pain like paul's former boss, bill clinton, but he can memorize a study about it, you know. people are distant from this president. there's a certain sense of arrogance to this white house that they're just detached from it and i think
